I wrote a blogpost about French parenting where I talked about the differences between the way we raise children in the US compared to in France, based on my experience there. After hearing about my article someone recommended this book to me about French parenting and it sums up my whole experience in France. Pamela Druckerman is an amazing writer and I relate to everything she says about French moms and children. Her book is called Bringing up Bebe.

French women don’t get fat
If you just want a light and easy read, A Year in the Merde talks about the daily struggles of an English man living in paris. This novel by Stephen Clarke is hilarious and incredibly accurate. The way the author describes the Parisian people and lifestyle is spot on, and if you’ve ever experienced Parisians or even the french in general you can’t help but laugh out loud.
